    Looking "good on paper" doesn't mean a thing on the field.

    But, if you want to see what people are saying about the Draft by AFC teams, here's a link to one.
    In case any of our Chargers/Raiders forum guests are visiting and cannot read so well,

    The article puts the Denver Broncos at the top of all AFC teams, with an initial draft grade of an A-.

    The Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders are ranked the worst in the AFC by this article at a C-. The San Dieg- I mean the Las Angeles Chargers were given a B-.

      Philip will have a wonderful view of the game from the perspective of face first in the turf. We're going to otherwise split his time between throwing picks and sitting on the bench helpless against a relentless mile high ground and pound football team.
      Vegas -doesn't wear team colored blinders. Right now the odds have us as 3rd place in AFC west.

      Money doesn't lie. Vegas also has SD as favorite to win the west.

        I think it's too early for any prediction to be used as a metric. Phillip Rivers' offensive line has never played well, we'll see if this is the year it gets better.

          Yea, they also had that Lamp kid who got hurt last year. He was a first rounder if I recall. He should provide a boost to that O line as well.

              We need to keep CK healthy and clean.

              Bosa and Ingram are no joke! Main difference this year should be a much more solid offense for Denver and hopefully a scarier pass rush than they have.

              Gruden is off to a shaky start, lets hope it goes downhill from there KC is going to rue the day they let Alex Smith leave town...

                Really? Just because I don't think we are going to win the division, It's babble? Are casinos in the business of giving away money or taking it? Cmon man, a bit of respect.

                  Psh. Bosa and Ingram need to move aside for the new best pass rush duo, Von'Chubb.

                      Las Vegas doesn't predict the outcomes of games or success. Instead, the predict the amount of money that will be bet on a particular outcome. Their goal is to balance the amount of money wagered as evenly as possible so they don't have to gamble. If one side has too much money they will increase the odds on the other side to encourage more money is wagered.

                      Once point to consider is that the Raiders have always been the "home town" favorite team in Las Vegas and with them moving soon to LV I'm sure the feeling is even more pronounced. Vegas casinos don't let emotion factor into their decisions. However, the betting public frequently does. This means there's a good chance that hometown emotions influence the money bet on the Raiders and the Raiders will appear to be slightly higher favorites than they really deserve.

                        I think we are a solid bet for 10-6 w/improved QB play, killer pass rush, now non-rookie HC (with Kubes hopefully a mentor) lighter schedule, and some championship pedigree still in the locker room/meeting rooms. Will that be good enough to win the division (or even make the playoffs) though? Hard to say- but for purposes of thread- I’ll say “yes”.

                        LACs are such a wildcard. Plenty of talent- but tendencies there to get off to slow starts, lose weird games, a strange home field situation, dealing with expectations now, “2nd team” in their own city, etc. They’re certainly not the ‘85 Bears...

                        KC and OAK can certainly be competitive- but one is coming off yet another nut punch loss at home in the playoffs, and is likely to see turnovers go up w/Smith now gone- and the other just always seems chaotic- and who honestly knows how Gruden’s return will go? If they get off to a 3-4 start- I think he may be looking for a Corona and a nice beach somewhere sooner rather than later. Does he really want to grind like 15 years ago? I have my doubts.

                          Of all the teams in the AFC West I think Denver has the chance to improve the most. The pass rush should improve quite a bit, which in turn should mitigate Talib's absence. Also, if Keenum is even just a game manager that will be far better than anything we've had lately. LA is solid, but Rivers is getting old. KC has explosive offensive talent, but also a young, raw QB. Can he limit the mistakes? They also have a poor defense. Oakland? I think that thing could turn into a disaster if Gruden is still stuck in the 90s. Can Carr keep improving? They also have a poor defense.

                            Take heed, Denver Bronco fans and faithful. We have had a great off-season.:lombardi:

                            Free agency put this team on track to win this year by fulfilling some major holes we had in the AFCW flagship, "The Denver Broncos.". The QB position has suffered a big up grade. We've got a high character guy leading the team again and he's got weapons. We took some hits, no doubt, losing Talib and Anderson created two major holes to be filled... those losses have attempted to be addressed with what looks like promising young talent. Hopefully our incomers can fill in and add some good play.

                            Judging from what has happened this off-season, I do not think the term, "soft" will apply to the level of play this year. Our draft seems to have provided a lot of young talent. From picking up he who is considered the greatest defensive player in the draft, but also picking up the all time leading rusher from an organization that has been an exceptional standout in producing top quality Running backs at the NFL level, aka "The Oregon Ducks". Royce Freeman, RB from Oregon is my pick for this years addition that can really establish a powerful identity for this offense. This bull of a running back has shown exceptional durability and vision. Many of the young men selected have also consistently shown durability through 4 year tenure at college and number of our incoming players have worn a "C" on their jersey. I like the interview quality coming from the incoming class. Seems like some bright minds. I am predicting the locker room is coming correct.

                            Watching the off-season continue to progress will be a lot of fun to see how we get down to a 53-man roster. There will be some real battles... I can't remember the last time I have seen such talent at the WR position for this organization.

                            The AFCW belongs to Denver. We will again have the clear stand out top defense in our division. With a return to a ground and pound run game complemented by great talent at the WR position- I think we have done enough this season to get right back up to leading the division, and becoming our regular perennial deep playoff threat.

                            Really think you hit on the major, major, upgrade point (besides QB) and that was the RB. With Royce we have a great chance to really put pressure on defenses. They can't play the whole game in dime and double our receivers as much and the OLine will grow confident. Nothing pumps up an OLine like a good running game.
                            No, we didn't get Barkley but we got a very good back.
                            Love it.
